MyPoints Giveth; MyPoints Taketh Away

Becky at Compare Rewards writes about the disappointing experience one of her readers had with MyPoints rewards program.

This morning I received an email from a member who was happy to report having won over 100,000 points in the latest MyPoints point giveaway. She noticed, however, that by the time the contest had ended, her points were worth less. “…what was a 7500 points for $100.00 gift card is now a $50.00 gift card,” she wrote

This is a reminder for all of us: the points are just points and their cash value is not guaranteed, and in fact can change any time. To avoid issues like this, use the programs that offer real cash back.

To find the program that fits you best, head to the comparison review I did last November, or use tools like evReward that automate the process for you.

    I am sure they are not as clueless about domains as Microsoft. Check this out.

    That’s too funny.. Now they might have to file a trademark lawsuit or pay to get it back.
